Collaboration is the key to customer engagements and growth, especially with digital marketing. Getting in contact with the brands you are interested for collaboration can be a bit stressful, but we’ve simplified it!
- Do your research
The first step is to know which exact brands you want to work with and do due diligence in understanding their online presence. Will they help you reach your goal? Will the association help or hurt your personal identity (as a brand).
- Review your options
You have to be absolutely certain that your personal objectives match the brands you are reaching out to, for collaborations. This way, it is easier to get them interested in the collaboration and also secure the attention of their audience.
- Make sure your pitch is perfect.
When you are approaching a brand for collaboration, you have to make sure the first thing you mention is engaging to keep them interested. Highlight what it is you do, how all parties can benefit for the collaboration, and why you chose them to collaborate with. Keep it short, simple, and sweet.
After the initial pitch you may get a response. Depending on the context, it is advisable to send a follow-up like a support shot for the initial pitch.
- Jazz Up…No dey lose focus.
In case you are too boujie to understand, that simply means you shouldn’t be worn down. Keep building your personal brand and improving on your image, whether or not you hear back from the people you sought out for collaborations. You live to try another day!
Now, you can start shooting successful shots at brands!
